Movie Review – 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

Best Movie I Didn’t Expect Much From that Turned Out to Be Awesome

I didn’t think much of 10 Cloverfield Lane and wasn’t expecting much out of it but I was pleasantly surprised. I feel like it deserved more attention than what it got.

Michelle gets into a car accident. She wakes up in an underground bunker. Howard informs her that he found her and brought her there just in time to avoid an alien attack on the planet.

Thus, you, as the viewer, start asking questions:

1) Is Howard a nut who is lying about the alien attack and he just kidnapped a woman to keep her in his bunker?

2) He is a nut but maybe he’s telling the truth about the alien attack? Perhaps he’s just an eccentric survivalist who under normal circumstances would be a nut but now his nuttiness has paid off?

3) Split the difference – maybe there are aliens but maybe Howard is still too nutty to chill out alien attack or not?

It was low budget, three characters, most of the film takes place in the bunker and yet it fills you with a lot of fear and suspense.

Check it out, 3.5.

A woman is either John Goodman’s guest or hostage.

That’s pretty much it.

End of review.

Crap.  That’s only 16 words?

Let’s talk some more then.  BQB here with a review of 10 Cloverfield Lane.

SPOILER WARNING!

So here’s the deal, 3.5 readers.

Our tale begins with Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) getting into a car accident.  When she wakes up, she’s locked away in an underground bunker.

Her host or captor as the case may be is Howard (John Goodman.)  He informs her that while she was knocked out, a  major attack occurred up above.  It might have been nuclear or chemical, he isn’t sure, but he’s sure that the world above ground is no longer habitable and she needs to stay in the bunker with him.  She’s informed that if she tries to leave the bunker, she’ll let in poison gas that will kill everyone.

OK.  Show of hands…
